Re: new or exclusively fsot?

i started out with new fb's/wonderroos/inserts/wipes BEFORE i found DS

since then it was mainly used BUT if i really really want a dipe and cant find it on FSOT then i will get it.

lately though my new LOVE is PFs so i havent bought any fitteds.

I've gotten new ones on ebay, but they were WAHM-made. I can't afford to buy new ones otherwise!

I bought all my prefolds and 4 covers new (before I knew about DS), but since then I have only bought 1 new dipe from a WAHM, not including the tester I will be getting soon. All the rest are from here!

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

I buy almost all my dipes used, but have bought a couple new here and there. We definately wouldn't be able to afford to buy all new, lol. If I buy a dipe in FSOT and love it, I normally watch the FSOT forums here and on other boards for more of that dipe before I'll buy new.

I especially like buying used if you are trying out new things.... then you don't lose out on to much money.

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

We're odd, I guess, but we buy mostly new. Usually the sales I find are just a few dollars cheaper and we're hoping to make these dipes last through more than one kid (I have even learned how to replace the elastic in most our dipes) so we'd prefer to buy new now so the wear and tear is just from our own kids. I have been known to buy on FSOT when I just wanna' try something that would ordinarily be pricey if bought new (like SEZ...). Mostly, though, I like to stick to my main stash and dabble a bit here and there, but then sell off what I've dabbled in. LOL

I buy mostly new but I started out buying most off FSOT. I just realized I wasn't saving much money and a lot of time the condition isn't great. I do about 80% new, 20% previously loved dipes.

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

I only buy new. I've looked at the FSOT boards, and it seems like most of the dipes I'm interested in are only a couple bucks cheaper there. So I can't justify the risk of getting a less-than-stellar dipe for a couple dollars. Plus I think DH would have a duck fit if I bought used dipes for our kids.

Re: new or exclusively fsot?

I buy used. But I make sure that the prices are postage paid and that I truly am saving money over a new one. Somtimes, people aren't really cutting you much a break. Plus, I am currently diapering my last baby, so there is no one to pass them down to, so as long as they get me through 1 kid...that is all I need. I did buy my prefolds and 1st covers new, but I didn't know about this site then. I am into fitteds and wool now, and have gotten them all from here and they have all been in excellent condition. I have never gotten a dipe in a condition other that described. Hopefully that won't happen.
